About This Company

The Excelsior Coal Company opened its first mine in Oskaloosa, Iowa in 1875, when the company was owned by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St Paul Railroad Company. Output was soon developed to 1,500 tons per day. When the mine was exhaused in 1890, the company opened the Carbonado mines in the heart of Quaker country which caused the departure of the Friends after a few years.

On July 30 1892 the company was merged with the Cahaba Coal Mining Company with Truman Aldrich as President.
